I loved this beer. I had on draft at the brewery and out of a can later at home. Out of the can in my pint glass, it's inky black, thin head with good lacing. The roasted malt/chocolaty flavor is mild and also a mild bitterness. It the brewery they serve it with a glazed donut hole and it pairs beautifully. I don't live near the brewery or it would be my go to stout.

Received in a ninja box from a terrific BA - Skillet Donut sounded terrific to me and immediately became a wish list item when I first saw it. Doesn't hurt that I love Burial!

Skillet Donut embodies some of the tastiest coffee adjuncts I've yet enjoyed. It's sweet, yet also slightly bitter and acidic, just like black coffee should be. The nose is all sweet coffee, and in a good way. The body is slightly thin, as coffee beers can occasionally be - yet the taste is still quite rich.

Skillet Donut is definitely worth a search, and probably even a trade. It's now one of my favorite canned beers.

10oz glass on tap at Sabatini's, Exeter PA this lunchtime.

looks splendid in a 10oz goblet, black body, oatmeal colored head.

aromas are a bit muted, some roastiness and a little coffee. no donut aroma.

tasty brew though. good roasted flavor without being over the top, slight coffee, no chocolate, and certainly no donut. only faintly sweet. there is a faint bourbon feel as well.

mouth is a little over medium, finish is medium roasted malt.

overall, comes off like a bigger stout than the 8.0 it is. quite enjoyable. my first from this brewery, which has apparently just started to distribute to PA. looking forward to more.
